Conservation agriculture in an irrigated cotton-wheat system of the western Indo-Gangetic Plains: Crop and water productivity and economic profitability
Cotton-wheat cropping system is the second most important wheat based system in the South Asia (4.5 M ha) and India (2.6 M ha) and contributes significantly to the food security in the region. However, with the conventional ...
Can productivity and profitability be enhanced in intensively managed cereal systems while reducing the environmental footprint of production? Assessing sustainable intensification options in the breadbasket of India
In the most productive area of the Indo-Gangetic Plains in Northwest India where high yields of rice and wheat are commonplace, a medium-term cropping system trial was conducted in Haryana State. The goal of the study was ...
Mapping smallholder wheat yields and sowing dates using micro-satellite data
Remote sensing offers a low-cost method for developing spatially continuous crop production statistics across large areas and through time. Nevertheless, it has been difficult to characterize the production of individual ...
Yield and yield attributes as affected by different sowing dates and different maturity classes cultivar on direct seeded rice
(Aufau Periodicals, 2017)
Field experiment was conducted to appraise the effect of different sowing dates and different maturity class’s cultivars on yield and yield attributes of the direct seeded rice during the Kharif season of 2014 and 2015, ...
Evaluation of the APSIM model in cropping systems of Asia
Resource shortages, driven by climatic, institutional and social changes in many regions of Asia, combined with growing imperatives to increase food production whilst ensuring environmental sustainability, are driving ...
Evaluation of the effects of mulch on optimum sowing date and irrigation management of zero till wheat in central Punjab, India using APSIM
Machinery for sowing wheat directly into rice residues has become more common in the rice-wheatsystems of the north-west Indo-Gangetic Plains of South Asia, with increasing numbers of farmers nowpotentially able to access ...
The conservation agriculture roadmap for India: policy brief

Relay planting of wheat in cotton: an innovative technology for enhancing productivity and profitability of wheat in cotton-wheat production system of South Asia
Cotton?wheat (CW) is the second most important cropping system after rice?wheat in South Asia. Sowing of wheat after cotton is usually delayed due to late pickings coupled with time needed for seedbed preparation, resulting ...
